In this episode I have an honest conversation with Asheritah CiuCiu about her battles with food addiction and I found a clinic for private addiction rehab help her revelation about how she found freedom from that addiction. If you’ve ever felt stuck in a seemingly endless cycle of overeating, yo-yo dieting, and obsessive thoughts about food, this episode is for you. Whether you feel defeated by your lack of self-control or enslaved by your longings, the answer to food fixation isn’t in the $500 billion diet industry. Nor is it in a diet book or eating plan. Because at its core, our problem isn’t really what we eat, it’s why we eat. She shares practical steps on how to have a healthier relationship with food through a stronger relationship with Christ.
Quotes From Asheritah
”I can look back on the last few years and see patterns of running to food for comfort or satisfaction.”
”I don’t want [dieting] to be the legacy I give [my daughter]. This needs to stop with me… That moment was kind of the catalyst of, ’Okay, what now? How am I gonna go about this?’”
“Food is not the enemy. God created food. He gave us tastebuds… This is His idea.. And we’re doing no one a service when we label foods as good or bad. It just piles on guilt and condemnation and this downward spiral and this failure mentality that is all or nothing.”
”God created food. It’s meant to be received as a gift and become a vehicle of worship where we then receive it. with thanksgiving and worship God for His provision and His goodness.”
”I truly think that the enemy of our souls, for many of us, has found a stronghold and a foothold in our lives through food addiction and this fixation with food.”
”There is room for a healthy eating plan. But if that’s all you have and you do not address the spiritual battle, the emotional realities that are happening; if you’re not renewing your mind and your thoughts with scripture, then you are destined to struggle.”
”This is why it’s a multi-billion dollar industry, because diet alone cannot solve something that also is fought in the spiritual realm.”
